My mum was admitted to hospital in early January, but she was put out a few days later because her bed was needed. I still felt she wasn't right.
Then, a few days ago, I took her to doctors, where she phoned an ambulance right away. She has been on drips and oxygen and nebuliser. However, she has just been put out today. I was disgusted when I walked into the discharge lounge to see my mum sitting in a housecoat and slippers not even a comb to her hair. I took a photo of the way she was left sitting. She is just getting over having pneumonia, then to my disgust I had to take her into a public toilet to get her dressed.
I feel the care she has had is shocking. I am livid at this. I will be going up to see my msp tomorrow.
